We were very happy to hear that the recent changes in Covid restrictions have let us practice again , however, the year has also brought changes to the band.
After taking most of 2019 off and being unable to play at all last year, combined with Mick retiring: Gerry has also decided it was time to hang up his sticks. Gerry started with the band in the late 90's (as The Bransby Mares) and has seen quite a few changes with us over the last 20 years. We shall miss his drumming but mainly we will miss his company. It seems hard for me to imagine the band without him behind us - we all wish him the very best and hope to see both Mick and Gerry on our future travels.
Derek has been covering for our 2019 gigs and also on our recent demo and we are very happy that he has agreed to takeover fulltime on drums - together with his lead and backing vocals he will make a great contribution to our future shows.
We are also very happy to announce that have made a radical change to our sound by playing with Ian - a keyboard player of great experience. Ian used to plat for Styx (registered 2 years before the American band with the same name) for 47 years. It is early days (having had only 1 practice with the band so far) but already we can see great potential for future songs and a great sound.
We are working on new material and hope to be back out and playing soon
